There are those who feel that yoga is just so…last year. And Pilates is just so, well…
What is Pilates, exactly?
(And what is that contraption for?)
Now there’s—it sounds almost genetically engineered—Yogilates.
All the rage at Equinox, Yogilates (pronounced Yogilateez), a synthesis of Hatha yoga and mat-style Pilates, is a “mind-body connection,” claims Jonathan Urla, the fitness and dance guru who developed the mega-calorie-burning-combo. (Four hundred calories a class, he says: Just think of all that candy!)The hour-long class?purportedly suitable for the novice or expert?has been in such demand that Equinox has added classes at its 54th Street and 92nd Street locations starting April 1.
Stay tuned for the at-home video. Until then, we recommend lighting some incense and breaking out a game of Twister.
